A Few Words about Scorpio
Passion is your essence, Scorpio – no surprise there. It drives you into bed, into intensity, into causes, and sometimes into hot water.
You are Fire of Water in the Tarot deck, the most dynamic and by far the wildest of the water signs. Your strong, steady energy, immense appetites and a longer than average lifespan make you formidable on nearly every level of life. You are like a force of nature – you must be contended with.
There are fascinating contradictions in your nature that sometimes confuse even you, for you can be loyal to the death with those you love, but should they cross you, wounding your emotional self-esteem, you become the most dangerous enemy in the zodiac. In Les Miserables, both Jean Val Jean and Inspector Javert showed characteristics that could easily be Scorpio.
Everybody knows Scorpios are great in bed – passionate, intuitive, wildly full of sexual secrets. What they may not know is how great you can be in anything that requires deep seated intuition, powerful strength in the clinches, and an unwavering determination to meet the goal (whatever that may be!)
You’re profoundly interested in the great mysteries: death, sex, and the workings of the universe, and you’re utterly relentless in your pursuit of what you want to know. Few truly know you, although many may think they do, for much of your true being lies hidden beneath the tidal emotions that ruffle the surface, but run deep as the Atlantic.
Scorpio This November
A new phase of life is opening up for you this month – happily, it’s a more enjoyable one than recent months have provided. Attention is focusing on your career, business and general success in life, so doors may open and you may find advantageous possibilities on the other side of them. Be ready to step through, but you may have to cool your jets until early December, as some of these opportunities could be a bit tardy. After mid-month of November, some of the sticky wickets you’ve had to endure in relationships will fade and your life will probably seem less confusing and more comfortable.

Life becomes clearer now as sticking to your professional agenda begins to make good things happen for you. You’ll feel more focused and anxious to get going but near the New Moon on the 7th be sure to listen to feedback from trusted allies and be willing to ditch outdated ideas, as well as problems that no longer apply. The future beckons, with new connections, affiliations and friendships that may prove very helpful, especially around the 27th. You are releasing major blockages, my friend, so don’t be surprised at the emotionality you experience as the old leaves and the new enters.

Launch those new plans, dear heart. Mercury retrogrades on the 17th and you know what a bother that is and mid-month you’ll be tempted to scattershot in all directions, so get going right now to get ahead of the curve.
Venus goes direct on the 16th and that will clear any romantic confusions you’ve been dealing with and with cheery Jupiter moving into Sagittarius, you won’t have to waste time on wondering if the world can be dazzled by you. Just accept that you’re a star and just do it, as they say at Nike! Make the most of this month and its energies, before the holiday madness sets in to distract you.

You’re so social this month, my sometimes-reclusive friend! Jupiter in Sagittarius revs you up at work and at play. New directions surface, and lovey-dovey Venus turns direct at the bottom of your solar chart so you can resolve old personal issues and relax into a less anxiety-filled future. You can actually reach deep within yourself to ditch the emotional issues that have held you back. You can banish the mean-Judge-within who harps on weaknesses or sorrows, to sap your confidence. You can safely come out of your protective shell and head into real happiness! I know this year has been a difficult journey, but you’re heading into the sunlight now and you simply must let go of the past to embrace the future joy that awaits you.

August 24 to September 23
Let those new concepts bubble up, dear Virgo. This month you’ve got a lot to give the world. Others will notice that, so speak your mind and enjoy the response. Do not hide your light under a barrel now, it is meant to shine and dazzle.
Your stresses are lightening, and your personal life is perking up. Lifestyle changes may be in the wind so embrace them! The Full Moon on the 23rd shines a klieg light on your many accomplishments. If you’re feeling irritated at all the changes you sense folding over you, realize it’s because you didn’t plan them and that kind of shift of control does not usually make you happy. But my advice is to give it all a chance, and this time you may be elated that you did.
